made it into the 60's or very close to it. if you didn't hit 60 you were likely in the 50's. 64 in concord. and right now we're still in the 60's in plenty of locations, not quite as warm as it was. so we're about 10 degrees above average or normal for today and we're going to see that translate into a milder night as well as there's warm air in place and there will be clouds around as well. so that will trap the winds actually right now, mostly coming in out of the southwest, as you'd expect with a milder day. comparedded to yesterday at this time, here's how much warmer we are. anywhere from 5 to 15 or more degrees warmer than where we were yesterday. there is some rain on the way this month, of course a brand new month, so no rain yet this month, but since september 1, 9.2 inches of rain in concord, that is 1.65 above normal.
way, we're still down about 6.5 inches for the year. but at least we're making some progress. some parts of southeastern new hampshire not quite as good a picture as concord where they keep records, but at least it gives you a starting point idea. clouds and sunshine back and forth is what we saw today. but things are about to go much more cloudy and wet over the next 24 hours. as this area of rainfall is pushing in our direction, it's an area of low pressure riding along a cool front on the other side of that air. and things get cooler and chillier for the foreseeable future as you can see the cold front begins to push on in. i'm not talking about extreme cold, but cooler than we have been. future cast thickens up the clouds and during the overnight hours especially in central and northern new hampshire. when you wake up tomorrow many of us will see rain right from
southeastern new hampshire where it may take longer to the rain to penetrate. but as you can see from future cast here, some downpours embedded within that area of shower activity are likely and then some scattered showers tomorrow evening. we go into friday with the skies clearing out, cooler though, and breezy, and that lasts right into and through the weekend. so a milder night tonight in the 40's just about everywhere, but tomorrow will be back to about average for this time of year with those showers around. and we take a look ahead the next seven days you especially compared to the 60's of today. but overall the weekend looking dry and sunny with some flurries possible at any time in the mountains. otherwise temperatures largely in the 40's to near 50 degrees. jean: thanks, josh. a local hero is hanging up his hiking boots. tom: up neck how the man leaving mount washington saved hundreds of lives. and at 5:30. >> bringing voters together after a bitter presidential
